    We are trip to the California for Disneyland and universal. So far the cheapest tickets have been on Costco. Check both the US and Canadian sites.

    On a 'smart' device, please excuse autocorrect/when letters are missing.

    Thanks - yeah I saw the legoland tickets for $80 on costco compared to 73 US advanced on the website. Not a huge savings but you do get a 4x aeroplan points (~650 big deal) but I don't think you need to commit to a date which is nice to maintain that flexibility.

    Thanks FrugalTrader - I couldn't find the code though. The website seems a bit sketchy too, no?

    Found it: Code is: 179902

    linked from here: https://www.legoland.com/thelegobatmanmovieus/

    Thanks!

    Summary:

    1) Renting cars through costco is awesome;
    2) Buying private insurance through BCAA saves a ton of money and buys piece of mind;
    3) Do NOT get Norwalk virus on your vacation. I got it the night before I left and the flight down there was blinding hell. Fortunately, it more less cleared up by the second day I was there;
    4) Greasy cheap happy hours in the US are not worth it (and not that cheap really);
    5) Lego land Florida is cheap and pretty lame;
    6) Kennedy space centre is mind bogglingly AWESOME. MUST SEE;
    7) Universal studios Orlando was pretty awesome. Crazy expensive ($1100 for 2 days for three people) but worth it. It's a pretty incredible spectacle, particularly the Harry Potter parts;
    8) Hotel through Priceline was pretty awesome too and probably saves $200 over the three nights.

    All in all... Florida is pretty shitty (in general) but those attractions were pretty great. oh, and Delta airlines isn't as crappy as I remember. They got a bunch of new plans which was nice.

    Yes, the website is shady, but it works! I've used them a couple of times.

    Back in the day when my wife was enceinte with #1, we went to Orlando and attended two timeshare presentations. One for the free accommodations and the other for two free passes to Disney. Which reminds me--we also stood in line for 6 hours on Canada Day at Mandarin for their free buffet.

    Crazy...

    Yeah, the place we stayed at was a time share place. Last night they said they'd give us $80 and a free buffet to come to a time share presentation. I did that once in Vegas - totally NOT worth it. I'm not that poor and my time is worth a lot more than $80 for a couple hours. never again.

    Yes, yes and yes.

    It's funny I tell everyone that lego land sucks, they always ignore my advice and then agree with me afterwards.

    Glad you had a good trip.
